Happy Mid Summer from The Medicine Shop & Clinic!
Do you know why Midsummer is so special for us? Because we are a pro bio dynamically active company. We aim to blend our tinctures and aromatherapy preparations on a full moon when their energy is at its strongest.

Message from our Founder
For those of you who haven’t visited us recently things are really happening in the world of health, beauty and well-being. If you have followed me and my Medicine Shop team over the last 25 years you will appreciate much of what we have been advocating since we started, is now being heralded as ‘essential’ for longevity and health happiness. Keeping it as natural as we can, keeping it as simple as we can, keeping it as profound as we can... that’s the secret to our success  - because we get people better faster which saves time and money. How do we do it?  Our secrets are revealed in my new article posted  in WHAT'S HOT on our website.

TOP TIP: The Moon and YOU: want to ‘stop’ an addiction? Cigarettes/chocolate/drink/drugs/weight? Start your intention the day after a full moon. We are 90% water - we are hugely influenced by the moon (it moves the sea by tidal activity - fact) so you should NEVER try and give anything up whilst the moon is waxing (getting larger/stronger), you should start when it gives up its energy and starts to WANE. Give it a try.

WHATS THE LATEST ILLNESS TREND? and they do come in trends... Tired all the time?
We are seeing in clinic lately an absolute spate of Thyroid and Adrenal issues. Symptoms of both can cross over, and the one can affect the other – for example, if your thyroid isn’t quite performing up to scratch, your adrenals may well have to pick up the slack and vice versa. The upshot can lead to many different symptoms and it can be a minefield picking them apart, and lets face it, your GP just isn’t going to bother, so it's down to you, and we are here to help you achieve the best results for you.
We offer salivary adrenal testing, blood and urinary testing for thyroid function and iodine deficiency, which can often help to pinpoint sub-clinical reasons for why you may be feeling so tired. Testing allows us to target our treatment very specifically and also gives us measurability a few months down the line if needed. These tests can be performed in the privacy of your own home, and a telephone consultation organised to discuss the results and make appropriate recommendations, in order to bring you back into balance and better health.
You need our help if you are:
  • Storing fat around the middle or struggling to lose weight
  • Tired all the time, particularly in the morning or if you have a ‘second wind’ at night
  • Energy slumps through the day
  • Losing hair
  • Weak, peeling nails
  • Constipated and bloated
  • Dry skin, swelling and puffiness
  • Heavy, frequent, longer period or menopausal issues.
  • Worsening Allergies
  • Persistent yeast infections
  • High cholesterol, particularly if unresponsive to medication
  • Repeated miscarriage in the first trimester
  • Anaemia
An increase in the use of fluoride in toothpastes and bromine in the preservation process of canning and tinning, combined with a reduction in the use of Iodised table salt in preference of Sea Salt or Rock Salt, has left many of us with an Iodine deficiency, which can contribute to thyroid malfunction.
